Crocheted Baby Booties Pattern

Mint green and white striped baby booties with pom-poms

Designed by Amy Mielke

Fits Size:  Well, it depends on the baby!  These have fit anywhere from 6 mo. to a year.  See note in materials for different sizes.

Gauge: 2 dc rows = 1" and 4 dc sts = 1"

Materials: Worsted weight yarn, hook needed to obtain gauge (F?).  NOTE:  I often use sport or fingering yarn with an appropriately sized hook to make preemie and newborn booties.

Rnd 1: Ch 12 .  Dc in third ch from hook THROUGH BACK LOOP (counts as a st when you count at the end of a row throughout pattern).  Dc in next 8 sts THROUGH BACK LOOP.  4 dc in next st. This allows you to turn and work in the other side of the stitches.  What was the front loop becomes the back loop.   Dc in next 8 sts THROUGH THE BACK LOOPS.  2 dc in last st.  Join with sl st. [24 sts]

Rnd 2:  Ch 2. Dc in bottom of ch 2 space.  2 dc in next st. Dc in next 8 sts.  2 dc in each of the next 4 sts.  Dc in next 8 sts.  2 dc in each of the last 2 sts.  Join with a sl st.  Ch 2. [32 sts]

Rnd 3:  Dc in each st around in the back loops.  Join.  Ch 2.

Rnd 4:  Dc in next 11 sts.  Dc 2 tog 4 times.  Dc in next 12 sts.  Join.  Ch 2. [28 sts]

Rnd 5:  Dc in next 3 sts.  Dc 2 tog around until last 4 sts.  Dc in the last 4 sts.  Join.  Ch 2.

Rnd 6:  Dc in each st around.  Join.  Ch 2. [18 sts]

Rnd 7:  Dc in bottom of ch 2 space.  (1 dc in next st, 2 dc in next st) around.  Dc in last st.  Join.  Finish off.

Thread ribbon through rnd 6 of bootie.  Or ch 65 for tie, leaving 1 1/2" - 2" tail.  Wrap yarn around ruler 30 times, tie middle and make pom-pom.  Thread tie through rnd 6 and tie a pom-pom to each end of tie.

Variations:

#1:  Use two colors for yarn.  Alternate colors to make stripes.

#2:  Use two colors of yarn, Main Color (MC) and Contrasting Color (CC).  Use CC for rnds 1, 2, 7 and for tie and pom-poms.  Use MC for all other rnds.
